The only/best way to get from the top of town to the Mercado/market on the dock front. Very cheap and quick but make sure you have small change to hand Simple queuing system, but just take care with your personal belongings in the lift as...More

But not essential if you are not going to the market. Costs less than a real and can't see anything anyway. But the top has a nice view and a good start to walk to the old town for a walking tour.

This elevator takes you to a local market where you can buy souvenirs. It is super cheap and works pretty well and constant.

Odd that this is even considered an attraction it's just a lift with little merit other than it avoids a not very nice walk down to harbour.

This is just an elevator... but if in the area - walk to the upper station, where there are nice views over the lower city.

I expected to be something turistic, but actually it's just an elevator, nothing more and nothing less. I guess when you're in Salvador you should take it (costs 5 Real), but don't get your hopes up too high.

Went as it was a top attraction in Bahia, not sure why though. Understand the dated history however it is literally just a lift, doesn't even have an view going down. Views at the top were okay. Costs 15 cent each way.

I enjoyed slowly ascending and getting the panorama of the city once we reached the top. One must buy a ticket to take the ride.

This old elevator construction is still transporting people from the lower part of the city, where the marina is, up to Pelourinho and the historical district. A small fee of 1 cent is charged!!!

It's cheap, only 15 cents of reais, but they don't have change if you pay with a 10 reais bill. We were a family of four and the suggestion the ladie working there was (in a very unpolite way) go change the bill outside. We...More
